Cabinet as a tribute to Indian dances. The colour enhances the tradition

Elena Salmistraro designs for Scarlet Splendour a cabinet collection  made entirely of lacquered wood and enameled brass. A blaze of colours, meticulously handcrafted to create a unique piece that is sculptural yet functional, elegant and overwhelming

Also in this case the work of Elena Salmistraro is unique. Her art, in this unique piece, seeks inspiration from Ethnochoreology, the detailed study of ethnic dance, understood to be an art form, where art is the unparalleled rhythm that has always been part of human culture

The Dancers designed for Scarlet Splendour are therefore a tribute to the classic dances of India and the grandeur of the dancers' costumes. However, nothing in this collection can be recognized as antiquated or even traditional. The Chhau Donna Cabinet is a flurry of colours, meticulously handcrafted to create a unique, sculptural yet functional, elegant, formidable and almost overwhelming piece.
